If you’ve always wanted to read a book about capybaras, I have great news for you! My owner wrote a book about me…sort of. It’s actually about three cats who try to capture a capybara that has gotten loose in their neighborhood. The lead cat’s name is Celeste so I didn’t even get top billing. And the capybara is actually name Caplynn and is a girl, so I’m not all that happy about that. But it is a book about capybaras and it is loosely based on me, there aren’t many capybaras who can even say that much. Continue reading “Book About Capys!” »
Caplin Rous 2007/07/10 - 2011/01/04
The photo above was taken on 2010/12/03, just one month before Caplin Rous died. He looks the picture of health, eating nice tasty, green grass just like a capybara should. Is this what killed him?

This adorable capybara named Rousabelle or Rousey for short (pronounced Rosy) was accidently let out of her yard by a delivery person. She is from Colliers, WV. If you live in the area, please keep an eye out for her or for any rumor that sounds like a capybara sighting. Rousey is tame but she may be frightened.
Please send call the number listed or me an email immediately if you have any information! firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Loving Eye
It is always hard to say goodbye to a beloved pet, but it is never harder than when the pet is a capybara. Every single capybara is a unique and wonderful creature whose demanding love forever changes those around them. Rocco is a special story though because, unlike every other capy I have blogged about, Rocco was born wild. His is a hard story, but it needs to be told.

Running after leaving the pond
This photo doesn’t have much to do with this blog post, I just want to make sure everyone sees how handsome and athletic I am. Plus, most of the photos in this blog won’t have me in them so we need to start with something to catch your attention. This blog is going to be about things I see around me on our property. Some of these things are just normal, boring things but some are pretty or surprising or pretty surprising! Continue reading “What I See Around Me” »
I deal with the chickens
It started out a day like any other day, and that explains why I can use the above photo in this post. It wasn’t taken today but it might as well have been. I am always having to deal with those chickens. I know they were my birthday present and so, technically, they belong to me, but I have to say that they do not know that. Unless them belonging to me means that all of my food belongs to them. But I digress. Continue reading “My Day as Capybassador” »
I am fashion forward
For too long I have been stifled by Melly’s need to control my movements when we are out and about. Have you seen what she has done to me? Two harnesses! TWO!!!! And they didn’t even match! How can a capybara even be seen in public dressed like that? So I was pretty excited when Melly and I picked out this new harness for me at PetCo on Saturday. I think the purple color brings out my eyes. Continue reading “The Collar Purple” »
